This Yoga Infused Wedding Will Make You Say Namaste
You’re getting married and know a photographer that you used to work with. In fact, you have a strong connection and couldn’t see anyone else capturing your day. So, of course, you have to ask and they say, “Yes! 100% I will be there.” Well, that was the case for Dana and Michael’s Cocoa Beach yoga infused wedding.

Story by Photographer Christine: It’s very hard for me to not post hundreds upon hundreds of pictures from this amazing wedding. First, because I was photographing from 8 am until 11 pm. Second being Dana (and now Michael!) hold a really special place in my heart. Making me totally biased and in love with every photo from this day!
Yoga Infused Life
I first met Dana in 2012. I was living in India, studying yoga, and photographing other yoga practitioners. Dana hired me to take some pictures of her. She was one of my first subjects outside of direct acquaintances and our relationship blossomed from there.
Eventually, I asked her if she would be interested in working as my assistant on yoga photo shoots. Since she is very skilled at yoga and a compassionate teacher, Dana would help the subjects in their poses. It was, to this day, one the best working relationships I have ever had.
We meshed on so many levels; with both of our personalities being equal parts perfectionist/calm cool and collected. Both gregarious introverts, if that’s even a thing, we take our jobs seriously. But have a keen sense of knowing that everything is as important as it is unimportant.
I also got to meet Michael along this journey. He is a kind and passionate soul who exudes qualities of having life, love, and career in a fine balance. These two are amazing together and I love them. Needless to say, I was very very honored to have them ask me to photograph their wedding.
Yoga Zen to Dance Party
The day started off with a yoga class on the beach and ended with a wild dance floor. A robust version of Hava Nagila included. I hope you enjoy the excitement of their day in pictures a much as I enjoyed capturing them.
